In Peace / Shalom, James Durlesser and Ron Love have created a volume designed to not only provide thorough exegesis of the biblical theme of Peace / Shalom, but also how that exegesis can be applied to the daily living of the Christian. Throughout this book, the reader will not only find information about how the subject of peace permeates the scriptural canon but will also discover many ways to help the person in the pew have a better understanding of peace in scripture as it applies to today’s world, and how it applies to their individual lives.
